The TF cell line, derived from a top predatory, carnivorous marine teleost, the turbot (Scophthalmus maximus), is known to have a limited conversion of C18 to C20 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA).(More)
This study reports the cloning, functional characterization, tissue expression, and nutritional regulation of a Δ6 fatty acyl desaturase of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua). PCR primers were designed(More)
We hypothesized that replacing fish oil with 18:3n-3-rich linseed oil may enable salmon to maintain the levels of tissue n-3HUFA levels through a combination of increased desaturation activity and(More)
Fish are the only major dietary source for humans of ω-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) and with declining fisheries farmed fish such as Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) constitute an increasing(More)
